My work is a constant manifest about one same subject: the City. The city, not only understood as the very well-known process of adding, subtracting or modifying spaces for all sorts of human activities but also as a complex system of nodes that involve and connect everybody’s blurry dreams, exacerbate passions, fearful nightmares or even tedious social life. The self-determination of the buildings manifested in the uniqueness of its combination of proportions, materials and functions behaves as the starting point of an investigative path towards the discovery of the forgotten soul of the city, (thus, myself…), which confronts consciousness and unconsciousness for the sake of finding the abnormal within the normal, the unusual around the usual, the hated among the beloved. Each part of the city acts as a catalyst of feelings, ideas and digressions that, once after its empowered soul emerges, becomes alive, unrestricted from norms, ready to fly into new, yet unexplored shapes. In cities, most spaces are achieved only by replication, thus maximizing the sublime contradiction of imitation as a source of creation. Knowing this ruthless law, I set myself the duty to witness the gravity of the urban soul while it changes from an understood shape into an intellectual experiment , always through a permeable decay towards the assumption of the volume, expelling newborn shapes as if they were already elderly. www.victorenrich.com
